Playwright Submissions for “Scenes from the Staten Island Ferry 2021” Now Open

web site

Deadline: December 31, 2020

Sundog Theatre in NYC is seeking one-act plays for “Scenes from the Staten Island Ferry 2021”
This is Sundog Theatre’s 19th annual presentation of new and original, one-act plays about our favorite boats, the Staten Island Ferries.

THE GUIDELINES
  • Original plays not previously produced or published, with a signed note affirming that.
  • 10-30 minutes in length and set on the Staten Island Ferry (Note: not performed on the Ferry).
  • Set in contemporary time period. Strong priority will be given to plays with 2 characters, however, 3-character plays will be considered. No special set pieces other than benches or railings found on the Ferry, limited and easily accessible props, and no special sound or lighting.
  • Avoid overt and unnecessary sexual/violence situations and language since we cater to a broad audience.
  • No musicals, long monologues, poetry, rants, or verse.
  • Humor, if appropriate, is appreciated.
IMPORTANT NOTE

This year’s theme is anything related to our current circumstances imposed by Covid-19. Again, humor is appreciated. Also note: write your play so that – if necessary – it can be rehearsed/performed online.


REMUNERATION

4 – 6 plays will be chosen, and writers will receive $100 each and be produced in our series of five spring 2021 performances in Staten Island or online.

SUBMISSION
  • Please send two hard copies, bound or stapled, blind submission (removable cover page with title, author and contacts) and the name of the play on each page to Sundog Theatre, “Scenes 2021”, PO Box 183, Staten Island, NY 10301.
  • Submissions should include brief synopsis, play history, a 70-word bio and also full resume of the writer.
  • Should be postmarked from now until December 31, 2020.
  • Do not submit plays electronically.
  • Questions: ferry@sundogtheatre.org. Susan Fenley, Producer
  • NO SUBMISSION FEE

Playwrights of selected plays will be contacted directly and their names listed on Sundog’s website early in 2021.
